Song of Songs 30 Day Retreat: Epilogue

10 Minute Daily Retreat - Read the Word of God with a prayerful heart.
By Susanne Timpani (Day 31)

O my dove, in the clefts of the rock,
    in the covert of the cliff,
let me see your face,
    let me hear your voice;
for your voice is sweet,
    and your face is lovely. SS 2:14

Our God desires to see our face turned to Him in prayer. He longs to hear our voice lifted in heart-felt praise.

When we read and reflect on God's Word prayerfully, we provide an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to speak to us. We experience Jesus move from the background of our life to His rightful place in the foreground.

The 10 Minute Daily Retreat encourages us to spend just 5 minutes Reading and Reflecting on the Gospel of the day.

We remain still for a further 5 minutes and Listen for God's voice. The Retreat concludes with our own unique prayer.  

The ultimate goal is to grow in intimacy with God our Father, through Jesus Christ, His only Son. 

20 On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. John 14:20 

I would love you to continue to participate in these twice weekly Retreats. I write on Sundays, and a volunteer from a small team writes on Wednesdays. The Gospel is taken from the Liturgical Calendar.

You can also access the 10 Minute Daily Retreat via Facebook or by downloading the App.

The Retreats will pause during the month of February as I prepare for the launch of my first novel, 'Twice stolen.'

Thank you for your participation in the Song of Songs 30 Day Retreat.

God Bless,

Read the scripture slowly.
Reflect on its meaning for you. 
Listen for God's voice in the stillness. 
Pray for God's blessing upon you.
